Safiyya is 52 years old and comes from Nablus. She is married and has three children. She has owned a grocery store since 2012. She asked Ryada for this loan in order to buy more goods and food, mobile cards, and some needed decorations for the store.
She hopes that this loan will increase their sales and thus improve the income of the family to provide the children with a better education. The one who appears in the picture is Safiyya's husband since she refused to appear in a picture due to cultural manners.
